Saturday 21st March 2020
MAMA June is insisting she is "staying safe inside" during the coronavirus pandemic only days after photos surfaced of her at an empty casino with her troubled boyfriend, Geno Doak.
Mama June, 40, made a rare appearance on Instagram on Saturday to wish her followers well during COVID-19 panic.
She posted a photo from inside what appears to be a hotel.
The From Not to Hot star wrote: "I hope everyone is staying safe out there this is a scary time."
She then referenced photos that surfaced of her and Geno walking around the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Florida on Tuesday.
Mama June, whose real name is June Shannon, said: "News keeps posting old pics of us and you can't believe everything you read."
She ended the caption with: "We're staying safe inside and we hope you are too."
The post comes one day after Mama June scared fans with a bizarre weight loss video ad.
In the Instagram video, she slurred her words and had missing teeth.
June and Geno ran off last year after the family threw them an intervention.
They were arrested for possession of a controlled substance - crack cocaine - and possession of drug paraphernalia - a crack pipe - in March 2019.
Doak was also charged with domestic violence.
In October 2019, their attorney entered a not guilty plea on their behalf.
The Sun exclusively reported they have a trial set for May 2020 in the case.
Mama June sold her Georgia home at a huge loss for fast cash.
In December 2019, June and Geno were accused of causing $1,000 worth of damage after trashing their hotel room.
They were kicked out of another hotel in January after not paying a $2,000 bill.
June was spotted pawning a diamond ring for $1,500 and has been selling items on Facebook Marketplace.
In January, Mama June posted on Instagram that she is going to "get back at it."
She wrote: "I'm not saying I'm perfect as everyday is a [struggle] n some days I just want to disappear n even though me n the kids aren't still seeing each other n it's [been] very hard on all of us but I hope one day that will [change]."
The troubled reality star added: "I want them to know I miss n love them very much."
Despite her social media post, she has remained with Geno.
In a preview clip for Mama June: Family Crisis, her family feared she would be killed after the last person who spoke to her was murdered.
The family only knew she was alive because of social media.
Mama June: Family Crisis premieres on Friday, March 27 on We TV.
